McKay assigns blame to Rove

John McKay minces no words. From The Seattle Times:
Two former U.S. attorneys said today they believe ongoing investigations into the dismissals last year of eight federal prosecutors could result in criminal charges against senior Justice Department officials.

John McKay, the former U.S. attorney for Western Washington, and David Iglesias, the former U.S. attorney for New Mexico, also said they believe White House political operative Karl Rove and his aides instigated the dismissals and ultimately decided who among the nation's 93 U.S. attorneys should be fired.
Um, wow.

It'll be interesting to see if McKay, Iglesias or Paul Charlton, another fired prosecutor, can top those comments at a forum this afternoon at Seattle University.
